Thanks Peter for your quick answer.
Actually that version supports only 0.9.30 and 0.9.31.

Even Buildroot 2009-02 can't go below 0.9.29 and I can't find any between 2005 and 2009...
I also expect Linux 2.6.36 was released much later than uClibC 0.9.28, so unsure an out-of-the-box buildroot setup will exist.
Hopefully there might still be some solution...

Argh, indeed.

I wouldn't try to combine such an only uClibc version with anything
recent, as recent programs often need features not available in older
uClibc versions.

Looking back in the git history, we removed uClibc 0.9.28 support in the
2010.08 cycle, so I think the 2010.05 release is your best bet.
